A Lesson for April 13th

Footprints in the Sand

Romans 10:15And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!

What happens with a sermon once it has been delivered? Does it disappear like footprints in the sand, washed away with the next wave upon the shore?

There are sermons I still recall from decades ago. Times when I agreed with the preacher and times when I disagreed. Oddly, I have the clearest memory of sermons with which I disagreed: Did I miss the preachers point? Or was the point of contention a means to keep an issue alive? So I might continue to mull the issue and to discuss it with friend and colleagues.

Now that I deliver more sermons than I hear, I hope I stimulate discussion among friends and family so that the hears of the Word on Sunday morning might become bearers of the Word on Sunday afternoon.

When have you delivered Good News?
